The Promise PLEDGE
I Promise was created by Jeff Black (Small Business Owner) and Julia A. Nelson (Mayor of Manning, South Carolina). Jeff and Julia started first grade together at Manning Primary School in 1969, the first-grade class of full integration in the county where the fight for school desegregation actually began – Clarendon County. Jeff is white. Julia is black. They don’t always agree on everything, but they have always cared about each other. Their motto: “The ties that bind us together are ones of love and respect.” Over a half-century later, their friendship remains strong today.
